The Big Hoopla STEM Challenge

When: Sunday, 12 March
Where: Dayton Convention Center

The Big Hoopla STEM Challenge is a free family event for kids (K-8) that ties together the excitement of college basketball and the power of STEM education. IEEE-USA and other regional and national partners were on hand to engage kids with hands-on STEM activities.

Kids who stopped by IEEE-USA’s booth learned about electricity by making their own simple take-home LED flashlight. Local IEEE members volunteered to help kids build their flashlights and see the joy on their faces as their LEDs light up for the first time!
